Pls Vs ips panel?
People are saying OCable to 120hz? Can it really?
Support 4k meaning u can actually view 4k on this monitor?

I know I know, Google, but if anyone has experience on this monitor, let me know cause this is very tempting. Thanks!

PLS is Samsung's take on LG's IPS technology. Technically it is superior to IPS, your eyes won't really tell the difference though. It doesn't support real 4K, it can simulate 4K. It will look slightly better than 1440p in games, but at the cost of graphic power. Not useful IMO. How much you can OC depends on your monitor. If you OC too high it could affect color accuracy.

Be careful when ordering these monitors, they are basically B stock panels from Samsung. They keep A stock for themselves on monitors marketed under the Samsung brand, and sell these B stock panels to QNIX. There is a higher chance of getting dead pixels and back light bleed with these monitors.

I got a couple of these for $300 each last month. My thoughts:

Pros:
OC'ed to 110Hz effortlessly
0 dead pixels(maybe got lucky here)
Colors and viewing angles are great
Mostly metal construction

Cons:
Some backlight bleed. One of mine had more than the other.
Not really 0 bezel. About 6.5mm
Both my monitors with all the same settings displayed colors differently

In general it's a solid monitor for this price. I use it for writing code so I haven't played any games yet (can't speak for frame skipping)

so the you overclocked them but you did not test for frame skipping? Then how do you know that the oc works? Because it took 110 hz ? laugh out loud wow.

just curious, how come you OC'ed the monitor if you didn't do any gaming on it? Is there any benefits for when writing code or doing other work related tasks? Let me know, and thanks for your input on this monitor!

That tool can report the refresh rate you set, but it doesn't report whether or not it's skipping frames, which is totally still possible, especially with the multi-connection models as opposed to the dual-DVI-only model.

If you feel like checking, I would refer to this thread on overclock.net [overclock.net] and follow some guidelines provided in the OP (specifically: navigate to the "Monitor Fixes, Support, Help" section, and click on "Overclocking Guide and Help" to expand its contents, and look at Step 4).

More people have been reporting that the multi-connection models can overclock moderately without frameskipping. Hopefully you got a good one. I'm curious if that claim can be more universally true nowadays because I'm getting interested in getting a multi model to replace (or add to?) my DVI-only one if it has a good chance at overclocking to at least 96Hz without dropping frames.

Hmm, this or the Crossover 2795? I want this for the smaller bezels and stand. I want the Crossover for possible higher stable overclock and no PWM flicker. I don't really care about the multiple inputs.
